Subject: this is really nice
yeah, '79 is great. louder and picking up a head of steam, but still able to deliver some of the laid back goods that we love from the '70's. Black Peter is a very mellow, but heart felt dirge this night. Shakedown is good, but chill. Passenger, rips. Jerry nails it (which he was not always able to do with this song) and eyes has some fantastic fast jazz noodling. this is a super nice listen. worth the dl, i think.

Subject: 26 years upon my head
I had seen high school hockey games there, but a Dead show? Tix were available at the University of Lowell,I was working in Tewksbury(about 5 miles away), I was on my way. Took my first wife,who wasn't "on the bus" and who had recently given birth to my first son(who was born "on the bus" and hasn't gotten off). Anyhow, show was very interesting. Sound inside was echoey, sightlines were good, ran into some UMass buddies(2 years removed from the Zoo) and was having a good time. BUT after drums and space the wife starts a scene to go home. 26 years later I have finally heard the end of Black Peter and the final 3 songs. I guess that I can forgive her now. I certainly didn't then. My son, Stephen, turned me on to this sight and I'm addicted. Replacing all my 'legs and sharing them with my 21-26 year old kids who have continued the tradition. By the way, second wife is "on the bus"....loves good music...we go to many and varied rock shows together. Oh, I love her.
Subject: Half Step...
Jam starts at 5, also quiet and somewhat tentative. They had played this a week before, but that one was their first in three months. Rio Grande verse at 6:34. Vocals seem a bit out of tune. 8:09 Garcia solos, but not much to speak of. Try the 9-1-79 version instead.
Subject: This is SWEET
as for the show....Welcome Brent!I usally dont give 5 stars,but this one is the LOST GEM OF THE ARCHIVE!!!!
